The Beauty and the Punisher: Pia Wurtzbach meets Duterte in Malacañang
Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach is back in Malacañang to meet the country’s President.
The towering beauty paid a courtesy call on President Duterte at the Palace on the country’s proposed hosting of the Miss Universe’s next edition. A photo shared on Instagram by Tourism Undersecretary Kat De Castro showed the President posing for a selfie with the Wurtzbach.
“What an honor it was to meet our new President, Rodrigo Duterte. First Mindanaon President and first Mindanaon Miss Universe 😊👑🇵🇭,” Pia wrote on Instagram.
Wurtzbach returned to Manila last weekend for a talk with Duterte to push for the country’s hosting of the international beauty pageant. The President has reportedly approved the proposal in principle.
Wurtzbach last visited Malacanang in January to pay a courtesy call on then President Aquino shortly after winning the beauty crown.
